Pass it on: the Bible verse that matters to me

Matthew 20.28

As a child I wondered in awe how courageous Jesus was to die for what he believed in. My parents were, and are, atheists, and would sarcastically ask how one man could die for many. The bible gives the reason, perfect man Jesus bought back for mankind the equivalent of what Adam lost, perfect life on a perfect earth when God,s kingdom rules over all the earth. It helps me to understand why Jesus taught us to pray for God’s kingdom as the solution to mankind’s problems.
